IndieBound: "[The story of these three women] will fascinate, repel, and bring you to tears."
Date: May 20 2011
"Once you find yourself in the grip of Rosa's saga, there is no escaping. Brutal, self-absorbed, perceptive, and hilarious, Rosa is as unreliable as she is unforgettable. Set both behind the Iron Curtain and in the reunified Germany, The Hottest Dishes of the Tartar Cuisine is refreshing as well as disturbing. The strengths of the three generations -- unsinkable Rosa, her passive but loving daughter Sulfia, and her unpredictable and mysterious granddaughter Aminat -- link these women together and simultaneously pull them apart. Their story will fascinate, repel, and bring you to tears."
